leader, harry reid has not come out and endorsed the president's proposals. tom, also not coming out, how is the president going to be able to get this legislation through congress if you can't seem to get some top-ranking democrats onboard. >> that's the biggest challenge. harry reid has said generally, he supportses the conversation about it, but his aides made it clear he's not taking the lead on this one and he expects to see other senators who have made issues of gun violence and the law enforcement their main calling card on capitol hill and that's patrick leahy and ann fine stine and chuck schumer from new york. we have 23, democrats running for re-election and most of them come from midwestern, western states. they have strong, rural communities and therefore are a lot more open to maintaining gun rights and so you will have a lot of these democrats who will be very nervous voting for any big changes and harry reid is one of them. the national rifle association stayed out of the reelection race and he owes it to them to perhaps temper the debate and not necessarily let all of this

something rather strong about harry reid. we assume that kind of language was not used in the white house this morning, but can they really get along and do what needs to get done? >> there is -- there are pockets of enmity that are quite well-known. what's really wonderful about washington, and this day is going to be full of this, is that you can have members, particularly on the senate floor, that can just bash each other. john has had a bird's-eye view of this. during the day with key issues of state at risk, and at the end of the day they can go off to the moncle and have a drink or a steak and so -- >> although a lot less than used to take place. >> that's true. >> jill biden, the vice president's wife, the second lady of the united states, begins her way down to the podium. >> i think there is more partisanship about to break out. >> call it bipartisanship. >> maybe i'm caught up in the spirit of the day. >> explain. >> i'll explain. >> and where do you see that? >> i have some circumstantial evidence. look at the fiscal cliff vote and look at the sandy vote. a microcosm. what you'

harry reid stopped short of embracing president obama's proposal calling them thoughtful recommendations. is the president's tone contributing to a lack of bipartisanship? >> no. i don't think this is about his tone. i think it is interesting to have a republican senator calling president obama combative given the nature of in congress and how the senate has blocked and pushed them into a corner. i think there is some room for the president to reach out to members of congress more, build those relationships more. have one-on-one meetings with them, do golfing with them, but we have to keep in mind that when we came into office, his leadership style was consensus. that is at the heart of this man. what is unfortunately happened, republicans have said, we're not going to come to the take and participate. we're going block and be the party of no. so you have to go to executive actions or executive orders. that is not how government should work. hopefully they will... ford, you know that the republicans have blocked everything. he has at the point where he has to take executive actions. >> a

b. johnson for six years presiding over this body saw one filibuster. and harry reid in his six years presiding over this senate has seen 391 filibusters. and let me convey that even when you have the votes to end a filibuster, the fact that it is launched creates enormous paralysis. imagine you're debating a bill and you continue debating through the end of the week and you come in the following monday and you debate and nobody has anything to say and so somebody says, "i ask unanimous consent that we have a final vote on this bill." now, you see, we don't have a previous question, motion on this floor, so one has to ask for unanimous consent. any of a hundred senators can weigh in and say "no." and when they they weigh in and say "no" on that monday, on tuesday, a petition is put forward with 16 senators saying, let's have a vote on closing debate. and that vote can't happen until thursday, under the rules. and if it's successful on a thursday, you have to have 30 hours more of debate before you can hold the final vote. that takes you into saturday. so monday through saturday
